Join us for a virtual talk with Paul Farber, Director of Monument Lab, for our 2021 Paul J. Cronin Memorial Lecture. Monument Lab is a Philadelphia based public art and history studio founded by Farber and artist Ken Lum in 2012. Their visionary work aims to rethink the ways art and history exist in public spaces. In collaboration with many artists and communities, Farber has developed groundbreaking critical ways of thinking about and building new monuments for our times. Through both his research and curatorial projects, he explores urban history, cultural memory, and creative approaches to civic engagement.

Farber’s talk provides context for deCordova’s newest exhibitions concerning contemporary art and monuments this year, Sonya Clark: Monumental Cloth, the Flag We Should Know opening April 9 and the outdoor installation of Jeffrey Gibson: Because You Once You Enter My Home It Becomes Our Home opening early June. For these projects, the artists have created monuments that commemorate underrepresented narratives in American history and contemporary life.
